Description by OLDIES.com:
A housekeeper faces unexpected snobbery when she marries her boss in this enjoyable drama starring Oscar-nominee Marie Dressler ("Dinner at Eight") and Oscar-honoree and Golden Globe-winner Jean Hersholt ("Grand Hotel"). Co-starring Oscar-honoree Myrna Loy ("The Best Years of Our Lives"). Dressler received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her role as Emma. Directed by multiple Oscar-nominee Clarence Brown ("National Velvet").
EMMA is a turn-of-the-century domestic drama completely dominated by star Marie Dressler. She plays the maid of an upper middle class family, keeping her wits about her as her employers suffer crisis after crisis. When the master of the house (Jean Hersholt), a prominent inventor, is widowed, he proposes marriage to Emma. Shortly afterward, Hersholt dies, and Emma, who has married "out of her class", is accused of murder by Hersholt's jealous children. Cleared of the accusation, Emma turns over her inheritance to the selfish children and heads off to work for another family, once again making the best of any and all bad situations.
